Gay activists furious with Obama By: Ben Smith and Nia-Malika Henderson December 17, 2008 06:32 PM EST
Barack Obamas choice of a prominent evangelical minister to perform the invocation at his inauguration is a conciliatory gesture toward social conservatives who opposed him in November, but it is drawing fierce challenges from a gay rights movement that in the wake of a gay marriage ban in California is looking for a fight.
Rick Warren, the senior pastor of Saddleback Church in southern California, opposes abortion rights but has taken more liberal stances on the government role in fighting poverty, and backed away from other evangelicals staunch support for economic conservatism. But its his support for the California constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage that drew the most heated criticism from Democrats Wednesday.
Your invitation to Reverend Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at your inauguration is a genuine blow to LGBT Americans, the president of Human Rights Campaign, Joe Solomonese, wrote Obama Wednesday. [W]e feel a deep level of disrespect when one of architects and promoters of an anti-gay agenda is given the prominence and the pulpit of your historic nomination.
The rapid, angry reaction from a range of gay activists comes as the gay rights movement looks for an opportunity to flex its political muscle. Last summer gay groups complained, but were rebuffed by Obama, when an ex-gay singer led Obamas rallies in South Carolina. And many were shocked last month when voters approved the California ban.

LOL the homo’s are taking a right beating lately.
This is just great,
what is it
ah yes change we can believe in
have you got that homo’s?
change you never thought LOL
He has betrayed the hard-core left most of all.
Does that mean that conservatives can still hope? I dunno.
Disagreement is not allowed. You’d think Obama would know that by now.
By the way, they knew Obama’s stance on gay marriage didn’t they?
Honestly now. Is there anyone abominable sodomites are not "furious" with?
we can watch the radical left and homo’s get all their knickers in a twist
IMHO, the entire LBGT "community" are a bunch of brown-shirts trapped in rainbow attire.
I personally dont have much use for Warren, another man of the cloth looking for a guvvie handout.
That said, I will fear him as a possible Manchurian candidate until his last day in office.

“Furious” and “fierce” are two more words that now belong exclusively to the “gay” emotional typology.
great isn’t it to see these homo’s get done over, the idiots actually thought he was going to give them marriage right off the bat.
maybe they never heard Biden or knew in the black community or the area of chicago homo’s are not well received.
Not only that but did they take no notice of the church he went to for 20 years
obama is actually pissing the left off more than the right and it is great to see
When your entire “ideology” is pandering the those who are pandered to less will always be upset.
Too bad no one runs on principles anymore. Maybe Paline, Jindal or Steele will lead us from this moral morass.
Prolly gonna hold their breath and stamp their feet. Maybe even say something snotty. I wonder if Ben and Nia-Malika, bless their little hearts, are writing from the inside, or merely as informed observers.
These "folks" don't have much to worry about.
Your ass ain’t gonna believe what your eyes are telling you!
Who’s the opportunist-Obama or Warren?
..oh $hit, I could just punch a pillow.
So His Majesty is telling the gays to bite him. Sweet.

Is B Hussein telling the rumpriders to pound sand instead of each other?
Did the gays finally realize what Muslims do to homos? Well, they elected a muzzie.
Popcorn, coming up!
Wait til the dems who voted for him, see what a mess he makes of this country in one year!!!
The election is over. They can shut the hell up until they are needed to bash the Republicans in four years.
The good news is that I expect that BHZero will probably tell them as much and have his presstitutes back him up.
They need not worry—Obammy will find a way to drop a few mill on one of their pet projects to appease them.
Gay activists aren’t really gay, are they? (In the traditional sense of the word)
I’m sure they wanted someone like Andy Sidden instead.
There they go associating Christians with Hitler, and Jews as a more protected group than themselves, when they speak of Obama not daring having a pro-Nazi preacher instead.
These f@gs are fascists and way over the top. I have always said there is no difference between sex-preference and racism, and the language of sexual-orientation goes right ahead with advocacy of bestiality and other abominable degenerate orientations.
Heehee...all these posts and no comment on this little jewel
tis a shame they are still not that way we could lock them in it this time
This is BS, big time. Warren had a pro-life right to turn down the biggest threat to the unborn ever conceived. Did the man actually agree to do this? NO conservative could even entertain the thought of supporting this man even to hand him a tissue, unless he was crying out in repentance for the deaths of the little ones he agrees to murder. THis is a con, Christians—a con. He’s saying here’s the apple—doesn’t Warren know the heart of Satan when he sees it?
Oh dear. The gays flexed political muscle. The gays complained. The gays are shocked.
Who wrote this BS? And who cares? They wanted hussein obama, they got him. Buyers remorse is a bitch. The gays can stand in unemployment lines just as well as the rest of us.
I knew, down the line, Obama’s rise was fraught with dangerous promises and humiliating “necessities” of being ashamed of f@gs and Islam.
How dare they question the Messiah anyways! For goodness’ sake. (sarc off).
The f@g media and Holywood wanted to be elected, as the real “first ladies” of Obama. My, the world is gona die because f@gs don’t get to be “dignified” and get to keep being ashamed of wishing to rape little boys freely, culturaly and physicaly.
We have other problems. Who are these freaging aristocrates?
I love the smell of napalm and persecution in the morning. It rushes the f@gs to go appopleptic. No honey, you can’t have your butt honey, sorry.
Absolutely not! Conservatives are the frog and Obama is the scorpion.
Yeah, I smell something of a set up. On the one hand Obama chooses to be officiated thus, on the other he stealthily funds for a huge protest against it... all a matter of conjecturing and further the shaming of us vs. gays and of slowly accustomizing the culture in favor of those poor gays.
Meanings and words are being manufactured right there to condemn Jews and Christians, while leaving belief or good tradition without real defense, naked.
That being said, persecuting Christians as a resulting show is interesting and will never solve the gays’ real problems amongst themselves, shaming each other. Pathetic.
This move is precisely calculated to decustom America from Christianity instead of putting it on an equal footing of accustomization.
Gay talk of equality here is rash hyocrisy, when nongays or antigay culture is deemed “specialy bigoted”.
Good luck Obama. If you play these satan games, you are not going to go far, but satan will at your expense, is all I can say.
In the media, homosexuals are perpetually “furious” like muslims are “outraged.”
Perhaps the gay activists want Rev. Rosie O’Donnell to perform the rites prior to the Obamaniacs’ mass orgasm.
Amen. I am diz-gusted with Warren and his blasphemies. Now this - no shock at all, really.
He might be self destructive. He is for sure the consumate social wheeler, using any social mean, christian or antichristian, to make personal contacts and fraternizations with those who know him best. It helps him wink, nod and and select. He makes these gestures that are never promises, stances that are never real stances, contradictions andbizantine flip flops.
In the end, the irony is that those openly outraged gays are at least believing in something. Obama seems to believe in nothing and to always fight or frustrate any seed of belief what so ever out there, whether Christian or not.
He’s a real nasty piece of work. Christians will be persecuted, but so will everyone else apparently.
Happy Obama everyone. (sarc off).
This is hilarious! The fags thought when Obama was elected they could shove their gay agenda down everybody’s throat. Obama is showing them they don’t own him and he has simply used them to get where he is. I think Rick Warren is a good pick but he should council Obama in regards to infanticide.
Obama will give the Homos everything he can and they know it.
Obama shouldn’t have bothered trying to appease conservative evangelicals. It won’t work for the same reason compassionate conservatism (ie: liberal appeasement) didn’t work. Meanwhile, he’s pissed off a valuable constituency. I’m sure he has the same thought Jorge had, “where else are they gonna go?” but they might stay home next election. See where that got the Republican party?
People never learn: Don't fall in love with a politician--they'll break your heart every time.
Angry turd rustlers? I’m not having a hard time NOT caring
